Gastric sleeve or sleeve gastrectomy is a type of bariatric surgery intended to treat obesity by inducing weight loss. Gastric sleeve is not only able to reduce the amount of food that the stomach can hold, but it can also lower the overall body fat by modifying the signals that work between your stomach and your brain.
